This is the main reason we use LiLi on refurb computers... a lot less drivers headaches ;)

Most problems I had were with the W10 graphics drivers. Farther second place, the network drivers. Audio third.
That is with a "fresh install". Upgrades will sometimes migrate stuff and keep them working but I don't like to keep old "baggage" so prefer clean installs.
Also, the installers are frequently problematic and don't work in W10. (from Vista/W7).

Oh, and it could "work" in W10 but with "Standard VGA Adapter" drivers, with little resolution/display options and no 3D acceleration or OpenGL, etc.

On Topic / Re: Linux Lite lets this $20 computer live in 2019
« Last post by TheDead on Today at 07:01:00 AM »
Most of the computers have been core 2 duo processors E7500 and 4.0 GB of memory and they seem to work well with Windows 10.

That's pretty nice for a used computer! ;)
The basic PC we build at the help center are P4 3.0GHz with 1.5 or 2GB RAM and 120GB HDD.
Those are sloooow/unworkable with W10 (or any "updated" Windows for that matter).

Also, thanks @newtusmaximus for the "Linux Replacements for Windows Programs" forum reminder. ;)

 I was just thinking, that when the Win7 end-of-life comes in January 2020, this may be followed by a flood of used laptops for sale, as many are unlikely to be upgradeable to Win10.

I have yet to find a computer running Windows 7 that wouldn't run Windows 10 free upgrade and have done several myself to sell although not a Windows user.

I was just thinking, that when the Win7 end-of-life comes in January 2020, this may be followed by a flood of used laptops for sale, as many are unlikely to be upgradeable to Win10. Hopefully, this will mean rich pickings for those in search of a good deal for an inexpensive laptop for a Linux Lite setup ...  8)

Network / Re: Wifi ok on DVD boot, fails when installed
« Last post by Davide Barranca on July 21, 2019, 04:02:10 AM »
Hi minesheep,
thanks for responding.

> How could it be always on, even after pushed? It should be a switch to turn wifi on and off.

It's not a switch, nor a toggle button (the kind of which stays pressed down): there's no feedback on the status of the Wifi other than the button backlight being either orange or turned off. And mine is always on, no matter what I do.

I've solved the problem in the most embarrassing way: I gave up yesterday night, and when I booted this morning the wifi decided to be kind with humanity and it worked. I've tried rebooting again and it persists being functional, so I'll call quit on that.
Thanks,

Davide
